Live Updates for Waterford -v- Finn Harps

Updates by Patrick O Connor

95'

FULL TIME!

The game has ended between Waterford and Finn Harps.

93'

Waterford firing aimless balls into the Harps box , not troubling the defence at all

90'

5 mins added time 

89'

Substitution

Stephen Doherty (in) - Barry McNamee (out) (Finn Harps).

88'

Waterford making a few forays into the Harps box in the closing stages but they have run out of ideas and dont really look like getting an equaliser.

85'

Waterford have very few senior players on their bench which is probably why Marc Bircham has not made some substitutions , they could certainly do with some fresh energy on the pitch.

80'

Waterford appeared to have run out of steam and run out of confidence, Harps are totally dominant and camped in Waterford's half 

75'

Substitution

Eric Molloy (in) - Cian Kavanagh (out) (Waterford).

75'

Solo effort from Foley who rampages down the right wing unchallenged and slots the ball past Murphy, no more than the visitors deserve after their second half dominance

75'

GOAL!

Adam Foley (Finn Harps) scores.

74'

PENALTY SCORED!

Barry McNamee (Finn Harps) scores from the penalty spot.

74'

Penalty for Harps, Power brings down Owolabi 

70'

Substitution

Mark Timlin (in) - Mark Russell (out) (Finn Harps).

70'

Yellow Card

Karl O'Sullivan (Finn Harps) is booked.

62'

Huge pressure being applied by Harps, their strength is beginning to tell and they have forced a number of frees which so far they have been unable to convert into a goal

62'

Substitution

Karl O'Sullivan (in) - Mark Coyle (out) (Finn Harps).

61'

Substitution

Adam Foley (in) - Sean Boyd (out) (Finn Harps).

Brillant save by Murphy, strong play by Owolabi sets up a shot for Boyd who shoukd have done better.

55'

The game is a bit scrappy so far in the second half, no shots on goal  but plenty of effort from both sides

50'

Sean Boyd wins a free kick but McNamee's delivery is poor , the ball goes straight into the greatfull arms of Murphy.

46'

SECOND HALF

The second half between Waterford and Finn Harps has started.

45'

Waterford started very brightly and took an early lead which gave them great confidence , however as the game progressed the physically stronger Harps side began to take control and probably consider themselves unlucky not to have drawn level by the break. 

They are playing three at the back, assistant manager  Paul Hegarty may need to reshape the team in the second period  if they are to get something out of the long journey down south.

45'

HALF TIME

It is half-time between Waterford and Finn Harps.

44'

 3 mins extra time

44'

Yellow Card

James Waite (Waterford) is booked.

44'

Marc Bircham will be well pleased if his side can hold onto their slender 1-0 lead  until the break

40'

Harps have now taken control of the match, Owolabi is causing the Waterford defence lots of problems, he is really testing Josh Collins and Darragh Power on the right flank of the home defence

36'

Owolabi has the ball in the net  but it does not count, he had fouled Darragh Power inside the box

33'

Harps have another corner which McNamee takes but experiened keeper  Murphy gathers easily.

33'

McNamee is back in action , Harps will certainly need him if they are to prise open the resolute Waterford defence.

33'

Barry McNamee down after a clash with Mascoll on the touchline, the Finn Harps medical team are on the pitch.

32'

Griffin has a shot from distance but it sails over the bar, no trouble for McGinley.

30'

A header by Sean Boyd draws an excellent save from Brian Murphy who pushes the ball over the bar for a corner.

29'

Very composed play by Waterford, they are playing very confidently for a side  sitting at the bottom of the table.

25'

Harps have now come back into the match and are beginning  to exert pressure on the home defence

24'

Ethan Boyle does well down the right wing and wins a corner for Harps, however with a distinct height advantage Harps cannot profit from the free kick and the ball goes wide.

18'

Ollie Horgan, sitting in the stand tonight , can be heard remonstrating with the referee over Coyle's yellow card which in fairness looked a bit harsh.

18'

Yellow Card

Mark Coyle (Finn Harps) is booked.

14'

Another free kick for Waterford, it leads to their first corner of the match , but O Reilly's kick does not beat the first man and its a goal kick for Harps.

10'

Mascoll's free kick gives Josh Collins a free header but there is no power in it and McGinley  gathers it easily.

9'

Its all Waterford in the early stages of the match, showing plenty of energy, Harps may be suffering the effects of the long bus journey down to the sunny south east .

7'

Yellow Card

Shane McEleney (Finn Harps) is booked.

3'

Poor defending by Harps allowed Mascoll rampage down their right flank without any difficulty, Ollie Horgan wont be happy with that.

3'

Great work down the left flank by left back James Mascoll, he does all the work himself and slots it past McGinley in the Harips goal.

3'

GOAL!

Jamie Mascoll (Waterford) scores.
